2 College Freshman

Campus Dining: I hate the campus dining here. The hours of operation are very poor and I don't feel that the food I am being offered is worth the pricy attachment to my tuition. I would much rather cook my own food in my miniature kitchen in my dorm.

5 College Freshman

Academics: I absolutely love all of the classes I am taking. I can't wait to sign up for more and I really feel that my teachers are passionate about what they are teaching. I don't feel that the workload was too heavy, and I thought it was an easy transition from high school work.

5 College Freshman

Academics: There are a lot of psychology majors however the advising department makes a great effort to get to know and assist all of us. There are a ton of job opportunities on campus and internships available as well.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The health services staff is so nice and although I waited a while, the doctors and nurses really knew what they were talking about and treated me in a respectful manner. I haven't seen campus police yet but we have these boxes every couple hundred feet where we can press a button in need of assistance for an emergency. We also have safety escort people who can come and transport people at night if they feel unsafe walking through campus or around town.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: I prefer the public transportation, and the bus drivers as well as local passengers are very helpful and friendly. They have helped me find where I was going a few times and they are always on time. I have yet to try the campus provided transportation because the schedules and routes are difficult to read and understand.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: We are supposed to be a tobacco free campus as of this year, however I do see a lot of smoking on campus. Out at parties, there is a lot of drinking and drug use but I have never felt pressured into doing any of it and I know plenty of people who go out and have fun without doing either.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I was a tad bit homesick at first, coming form the other side of the country, however I really do like it here at ASU. I love the classes that I am in and all of the opportunities I have already engaged in while attending for only a few months.

Nightlife: I'm not of drinking age however there is a huge area for night life and I have enjoyed most of the restaurants in the area.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Most of the people who come here are strictly into partying so that is the typical personality of the guys you will meet on campus. I have made several guy friends who are wonderful, but I am in a long distance relationship and not interested in dating any of the guys at ASU.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I was expecting the absolute worst when coming into my dorm on the first year however my room is spacious, clean, with nice furniture, and plenty of closet space. I was very surprised and am grateful for having such a wonderful dorm. I do notice however that other dorms aren't as nice, each one is designed differently and is a different size.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: I don't have any diverse aspects like religion or race however I do see a lot of groups of friends coinciding with the same race and religion around campus. It seems like there is a group for everyone!

4 College Freshman

Majors: I'm only a freshman so I don't exactly know the ropes of internships, however I do know that Arizona State gives you all of the tools that you need in order to find and prepare for one. The staff and advising staff are amazing in encouraging you to do the best with your education and how to prepare sufficiently for graduate school.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I know that in my field of psychology, I will need to go to graduate school however I wouldn't change that because it is something that I am passionate about and love learning about. My career goals are to become an art therapist, and work either in a hospital or a non profit organization with children with disabilities or illnesses. I am nervous that since art therapy is a new field, it will be difficult to find a sufficient job.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I received a scholarship through Arizona State however it was less than any other scholarships I received from other schools that I was accepted to. It is easy to keep track of what finances you owe and by when with the ASU accounts.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: It's a college town with much to do if you're 21+. on the other hand, lots of shopping and fun outdoor activities. Our football games are AMAZING and the spirit it insane.

5 College Freshman

Weather: It's always sunny and warm in Arizona, so you never have to worry about walking to class in the snow or rain!

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Overall experience it great and i would not have gone any other route. Excellent school! definitely recommend it to everyone else.

5 College Junior

Scholarships: I receive all financial aid offered. However, being an out of state student it is still not enough to cover all expenses.

5 College Junior

Weather: Love the weather! you have all seasons..

5 College Junior

Majors: Program is wonderful. i do not have any complaints about the criminology program. I have learn so much from instructors and other students. the interaction between everyone makes things very easy to understand. Instructors are very clear an thorough with all work.

College Junior

Majors: I have not yet to apply for an internship through ASU.

5 College Junior

Academics: I am current working on my BS in Criminology. The classes are great and instructors keep it interesting. It is easy to understand material, because the instructors really care about their students learning and understand what it is that they are learning.

5 College Junior

Academics: Workload is good. they do not overwhelm you with too much work that you are unable to finish, it is just enough to get everything done on time. There is a lot of reading for each class, but the material is interesting; so, a lot of reading is perfectly fine for me. Instructor keep all students interacting with one another and it a great way for students to build off each others knowledge

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: i do not live in Arizona, but i have lots of family that does, and the housing is great, great cost of living.

5 College Junior

Campus Dining: There is everything for everyone.

Arizona State is like no other university in the country. With a large, vibrant, and exciting student body that truly makes the campus unique, there is no arguing that ASU is by any means a boring place to be for the next four years of your life. As soon as you step onto ASU's campus, you will feel the immense amount of positive and exciting energy that gives you sense of belonging. Even though there are so many students around campus, you will be sure to find a niche to call your own. College is the time to find yourself and truly learn who you are as you prepare for the real world. ASU provides the perfect environment to challenge you to make "adult" decisions, and you won't always, but by the end of it all, you will mature into a dedicated individual!

Even though students will struggle with all-nighters, sports practice, parking tickets, and trying to recover from a great night, many of them couldn't ask for anything else. There will be times that you are drowning in homework and studying, but by the end of it all, you will look back and laugh. Your peers help you get through the tough times and make those social outings even more fun. ASU knows how to party hard, but when it comes to crunch time, we pull it off well. The kids here know how to have a great time, the nightlife and social settings are extremely fun, the academics are quite challenging—especially when you apply yourself and take it seriously—but most importantly, students will leave prepared for post-graduation and taking on the world. ASU is a fantastic place to meet new people and a great way to experience life in the great southwest. But don't take my word for it—come on out and experience it for yourself!
